<p> Today, enjoy a wonderful optional excursion to the unique city of Venice, the largest city in the Veneto area. This city mixes Byzantine and Renaissance architecture throughout the 118 islands; the magnificent buildings – surrounded by bridges and canals – are a sign of the city’s former wealth. There are many spectacular sights to see, including the Bridge of Sighs, St. Mark’s Square and the Doge's Palace. <p></p> During your visit to Venice, don’t forget to try a gondola ride. The official price is €80 per gondola for a 50 minute ride, but this can vary depending on the gondolier, the time of day, and whether singing is required. Be prepared to barter a little! </p><p> To make the most of your visit to this wonderful city, we recommend you join our optional lagoon cruise around part of the Venetian Lagoon. </p>
